The Kansas City Chiefs, Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes have put together one of the most impressive offensive seasons in NFL history. Although, on defense, the Chiefs haven't been so dominant. In fact, they've been quite terrible on the defensive end, ranking 31st in total defense, 31st in passing defense, 27th in rushing defense and 24th in scoring defense.
All of that adds up to a historically bad defense, and that statement is confirmed by the fact that they've surrendered the most points of any 10-win team in NFL history.

This stat is a perfect testament to not only how terrible their defense is, but how dominant their offense is as well. They've basically spent the entire season outscoring teams left and right.
We will see if the Chiefs defense can keep this Colts' offense down enough to outscore them, but with Andrew Luck paying as well as he is, you have to be a little nervous as a Chiefs fan.
